Raider Open House


We invite high school students, transfer and nontraditional students, families, teachers, guidance counselors, and friends to explore campus and learn more about becoming a Raider.

Celebrating 50 Years

In 1967, when enrollment reached 5,704 students, the Dayton Campus of Miami University and Ohio State University ceased to exist, and the newly independent Wright State University came into being. Join us throughout 2017 as we celebrate our history and look forward to the future.

We See the Potential in You

The Wright brothers were not pilots. They were dreamers and inventors. Through their persistence they taught the world to fly. Named after these pioneers, we carry on their desire to build, create, and pioneer. What does it mean to be a pioneer? Find out here.
